Is there Anyone who has RA and has had a hysterectomy or is going to have a hysterectomy?

I have uterine fibroids and my dr wants me to get a hysterectomy but I’m afraid and don’t know what to do. Any thoughts?

I’m 45, but my uterus is the size of a 5 month pregnancy and my back aches. I all so get pelvic pain during my period, have heavy bleeding for about a wk and I feel a lot of abdominal pressure.

Another alternative is CBD oil if you have to come off your meds, not sure if its legal where you are.

Definitely look into Fibroid Embolizaton. You would not need to come of the medications and is VERY effective for treating fibroids. You want to find an Interventional Radiologist in your area, this is my area of expertise. Let me know if you need any help finding someone.

I didn’t have RA until later on. I take 3 months off as I also had surgery on my eye due to glaucoma. Don’t have your hip and hysterectomy too close together as i think its too much on the body. If your fibroids are not bothering you delay it as I feel your hip surgery takes priority

Im worried because I will also be needing 2 hip replacements and it all just seems a lot for me to handle. Did u get off your meds and how long did it take for u to recuperate?
